4 stars Another excellent album from Supertramp. Five years after Somethings Never Change ,Rick Davies moved to New York from his longtime stablishment of LA and created Slow Motion. Again if you like jazz and swing with the Supertramp stamp of sound then this album will not disappoint.I saw this album played live in Leicester UK in 2002 and it was great to see how tightly these guys played together. Highlights on this maturely delivered album are the title track, a real burner,' Broken Hearted', ' 10th Avenue Breakdown' - great jamming on here, great keyboards from RD, ' Sting In The Tail' for swing and the awesome ' Dead Man's Blues'. I hope Supertramp continue in this direction. I have to admit that as I get older the more appealing this latest sound from Supertramp becomes. Revisit them if you wrote them off after Free As A Bird and you will see what I mean. A bit like Steely Dan or a good vintage red wine that improves with age.

1 stars Supertramp should have already called it quit after their good "Brother Where You Bound" in 1985. By doing so, they would have ended on a positive note. But, alas they kept going on and produced one weak album ("Some Things Never Change") and their two poorest ones : "Free As A Bird" and "Slow Motion".

The title track can make illusion. Catchy melody, good piano : a song like they have produced a lot during their wonderful journey. It is the highlight of this work. There won't be any other one.

What comes next are, at best, some easy listening music like "Little by Little" : a little funky tune but not too bad compared to what comes next.

"Broken Hearted" seems to come from the Jerry Lee Lewis repertoire. An attempt to good old rock'n' roll (even revival). One could cope with this while going out at a local party where you have an unknown band on stage playing some live music. By no means I expect this from 'Tramp.

"Over You" is rather horrifying : a transparent jazzy ballad. It's OK when you're dining in a chic hotel with a "lobby band" playing such stuff. Again not Supertramp.

"Tenth Avenue Breakdown" is a jazzy track with more flavour. But its lenght (almost nine minutes) makes it rather dull and repetitive after one third of it.

Two poor bluesy songs to follow : " A Sting in the Tail" and "Bee in Your Bonnet" : I can't tell which one is worse. Let's call it a draw !

"Goldrush" although released on this album has been in the Supertramp repertoire since the very early seventies and was used as a live opener before School. It is the second average number of this album.

Dreadful long and bluesy/jazzy track as closing number. Not a turnpoint in the music history I must say.

As I initially wrote : this is definitely another album too much for the 'Tramp. One little star.

3 stars I've got to say that this one was a bit of a surprise to me when I finally bought it ( 2nd Hand, last year ), cause it proved to be far better than its predecessors. I don't think it's of any use to blame Rick Davies for Supertramp "not being the same anymore", cause, after Roger Hodgson had left th ... (read more)

4 stars A very polished effort of Supertramp. When I bought the CD, it was a great surprise. Far better than its immediate predecessors, Slowmotion has more cohesion and musical quality. It has a jazzy feeling all the time, with many horns arrangements by the master John Hellywell, and it is great. So ... (read more)

2 stars Please... .¿What happened with the creativeness of these guys.? !!!!Something different please¡¡¡¡. It is obvious Supertramp goes round and round through the same formula since Free As A Bird. A mix between blues and and old Rick Davies songs in Supertramp. But the result is some boring ...

4 stars Overall, I like this record. There is alot of hit and miss with late Supertramp, but Dead Man Blues makes up for the misses here. It's a true gem that is inspiring and so easy to listen to. There isnt much progressive on this record, it has a jazzy / blues feel to it, but give it a go. Overall ... (read more)
